Most of our interviewees are our local Malaysian, being a proud Malaysian makes their stories heart-whelming and relatable.
These athletes could be your next-door neighbor, family, or friends. Besides that, we continue to share stories from our local Malaysian biking shops and a couple of overseas stories. We have featured biking shops, such as ASTICYCLE, VELO6 (Hong Kong), 2ESCAPE, JBS Bike Trading, and even small yet humble businesses across the nation, as it’s truly inspiring to understand what fueled them to start or continued their biking business throughout the years.
